Toulouse | 31

The Augustin monastery is a fine example of meridional gothic architecture dating mostly from the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries (with the exception of the little classical cloisters that was built in 1626). In 1793, very shortly after the creation of the Louvre, the monument became a museum.

The museum’s collections today number more than four thousand pieces centring around a core of works seized during the Revolution. These include the inventory of the former Toulouse Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture and works from numerous religious establishments destroyed in Toulouse during the nineteenth century, to which were added the national collections as well as acquisitions made by the city, and donated and bequeathed works.
